The Greater Glory Of God

Published by Saint Vincent Archabbey Public Relations on

Wimmer Wednesday

“I must not be fearful or anxious about whether the work that lies before me is great, and the material and personal strengths for its completion small. The ancient God, who is pleased to be served by weak instruments for the accomplishment of His purposes and to whom all honor alone is due, still lives and knows means and methods sufficient to help the weak in ways no one expects. I must not lose sight of my single goal–the greater glory of God–and I am confident that I will gain His protection. One must be prepared to contend with many obstacles, but through courage, perseverance, and confidence in God, one will overcome them all.”
